Discovery and Vatican Team Up for Reality Series
By AOL TV Editors Posted Jan 5th 2011 09:40PM
Yep, Discovery has teamed with the Catholic Church for a new series based on their investigations of hauntings and demonic possessions. According to Entertainment Weekly, the series will also feature interviews with religious experts and top Vatican officials, people who are rarely seen on TV.
"The Vatican is an extraordinarily hard place to get access to, but we explained we're not going to try to tell people what to think," Clark Bunting, president and general manager of Discovery, told EW. "The work these folks do, and their conviction in their beliefs, make for fascinating stories."
If the first season -- set to debut sometime this spring -- does well, producers may be able to take the show to the next level and accompany religious officials on exorcisms and investigations.
The show sounds a bit ridiculous, but in a very perfect way. Start off with a lazy weekend marathon and we'll be hooked for sure. Hopefully it'll be like 'FBI Files,' but even creepier!
